Lithotripsy is a medical procedure which involves breaking stones present in the bladder, kidney, and ureter into tiny pieces through the use of high-energy shock waves so that they can be easily passed through the urine. Lithotripsy is the most common line of treatment for kidney stones. 

The growing prevalence of urological disorders is one of the main factors boosting the growth of the global lithotripsy market. Additionally, one of the main advantages associated with lithotripsy is that it does not involve any incision. Growing preference for minimally -invasive and noninvasive medical procedures is a prime factor augmenting the growth of the market.

Increasing investment by market players on the development of novel devices and innovation has resulted in various product launches which are expected to augur market growth over the forecast period. Other factors fostering market growth include improvement in reimbursement scenario, the rise in the aging population, and spreading awareness regarding the procedure.

However, very large stones cannot be treated with lithotripsy and lithotripsy is not suitable for every patient who might impede the growth of the market over the forecast period. Moreover, lithotripsy is not suitable for pregnant women, people with bleeding disorders, morbidly obese people, and people with severe skeletal abnormalities. The underlying potential risk of causing injuries to the kidney is also a factor which restricts patients to opt for the procedure. However, advancements in technology and innovation in procedures is likely to present growth opportunities to the global lithotripsy market.
